In the book Crossing the Chasm: Marketing and Selling Technology Project, Geoffrey Moore discusses the idea that technologies start with early adopters and at some point must “cross the chasm” to majority.
At the recent Salt Lake Agile Roundtable meeting, there was a brief exchange on if Agile had crossed the chasm.
My thought (which is informed by recent experiences with the majority) is that the term “Agile” and some of the practices (Scrum/Scrum-like practices) have crossed the chasm but the values expressed in the manifesto have not.
What do you think? What has your experience been?
